I've written my own xkb map (thanks to [0]), but now I am unsure how
to load it.


I am on a single-user machine, and I'd really like to
replace my crufty xmodmap script with the new map, but I cannot
figure out how to load the map from my xsession. I'd rather not
modify /etc for this, and /usr/share/X11 is certainly out of the

How can I load a custom xkb map, which I've placed under $HOME?
